I would imagine that there is an interesting story behind this thread! :)

Can you encourage it to run into something eg, a big carpet inner tube?

Hi Threelittlepigs
That's an excellent idea, my husband is going to give it a try tomorrow, perhaps feeding the tube into a hidden cage or something, it has already come quite close with food so food in the tube might just work.

The story is that there is a Chipmunk running round outside and in, when he gets a chance at my husbands work, they have been trying to catch as worryingly there may be rat poison around, fingers crossed your idea works.

Stewie is well and all is going fine with him and Wingus, they seem firm friends

take care

I have found when catching rodents that encouraging it into a tube is the best way of catching. The tube must be open at both ends as an animal won't go in to what it perceives to be a dead end. In the past I have also scooped up a piggy that got lost under a bush by placing a large fishing net flat on the ground. When the piggy was in the centre of the net I scooped it up suddenly.

Hope this helps!
